Service Description

In contrast to a traditional tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) surgery, a mini tummy tuck only addresses the excess fat and skin just above the pubic area, and involves a smaller scar and faster recovery. This excess fat and skin is most common in women after pregnancy and C-sections, and exercise alone won’t eliminate the problem.

In contrast to a traditional tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) surgery, a mini tummy tuck only addresses the excess fat and skin just above the pubic area, and involves a smaller scar and faster recovery. This excess fat and skin is most common in women after pregnancy and C-sections, and exercise alone won’t eliminate the problem.

 There are many benefits that are associated with a mini tummy tuck. First, it is much less invasive than a traditional abdominoplasty, which means a much shorter recovery period for the patient.

 Other benefits include:

-      Less scarring than with a traditional abdominoplasty

-      No repositioning of your belly button

-      Procedure is available to a wider group of people, including patients who are not suitable candidates for a full tummy tuck because of scarring from previous procedures

-      More economical than a full tummy tuck

For those patients who don’t require any additional contour sculpting above the belly button, and do not have a significantly protruding abdominal muscle wall, the mini tummy tuck is the procedure of choice.

Am I a Candidate for a Mini Tummy Tuck?

The best candidates for a mini tummy tuck are patients with skin and excessive fatty tissue that is limited to the area below the belly button.Women who have a little pouch above their C-section scars are the ideal candidates.  Patients may have a slim abdomen, but want it sculpted into a more attractive look. The patient should also have good muscle tone to the abdominal muscles and be in good health.

In addition, patients should have:

o  Stable weight

o  Good skin tone and skin elasticity

o  Only a small amount of abdominal skin to be removed

o  Realistic expectations from the surgery

 You should also be in good health, as this is key for proper healing and recovery after your procedure.
